Ruby Tuesday 2 - Super Bowl Pizza

Ruby Tuesday 2 reappears for the week. We all follow the one rule: Any red will do, a lot or a little. Toady it is the latter…Ah, what can one say about that unique US (secular) holiday, the Super Bowl. At its essence, it is an (American) football game. It seems to be a day of parties and food – Patti, Allegra and I concentrated on the food part. 

I once had at Zuppardi’s in West Haven, what was referred to as a Antipasto Focaccia. We tried to replicate it at home, and it included the pizza crust, salami, artichoke hearts, pancetta, and copa ham in a vinegary dressing, mozzarella on top. And, tomatoes for the requisite ruby. It turned out to be special eats on our dinner party for three.

Yet, at its essence, it was merely a game. I like both teams, the Patriots and the Giants, as do many people in Connecticut, many the same distance from Boston and New York. I would say that the Giants were the better team today - hence, the four point win. As foodies, looking for a unique and tasty treat, we three found it!

Focaccia is something even I can make. I simply love it. I'll have to try doing this the American way. Thanks for inspiring recipe.
I sat up till four this morning to watch the Super Bowl. my sympathy was with the Giants, mainly because so many Norwegians live in NY.
For a long time the figures were 12 to 17. I was exhausted.
The Mannning Man turned the game whike I was out in the kitchen. : D
